TNG Limited (TNG AU) has announced an AU$4m placement led by SMS Group with a contribution of AU$1.5m which underpins the strong support that the group has provided for TNG to date. SMS had agreed to provide assistance with obtaining project financing primarily through Export Credit Agencies for the construction of the TIVAN refinery. Furthermore, SMS signed a binding agreement in May for the engineering, design and construction of the refinery.

VSA Battery Market Recharge
23 Mar 16
Lithium stocks have doubled and doubled again over the past 18 months as reports of US$12,000/t lithium carbonate spot purchases have spread from China with demand growing strongly on the back of rising electric vehicle sales. Although the fundamentals of the lithium market remain attractive, in our view, we believe that stocks now appear expensive and we expect a correction following such a sharp rally. Valuations now reflect the upper end of spot price reports, however, the spot market reflects only a small portion of annual transactions and we expect annual pricing negotiations between the majors to result in more modest increases YoY to around US$8-9,000/t for lithium carbonate and US$9-10,000/t for lithium hydroxide in 2016. Furthermore, recent transactional activity demonstrates clearly the divergence between fair value and current market valuations.

TNG Limited (TNG AU) has signed a binding agreement with the German engineering firm SMS Group who will support the next phase for the TiVAN refinery. We believe that SMS’ continued involvement is positive since the group have already been heavily involved with the Mount Peake V-Ti-Fe project, in particular during the test work and optimisation phase of the TiVAN metallurgical process.

The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
Opuama production restarts
21 Feb 17
Eland has confirmed the successful restart of exports from OML 40 through the new shipping alternative that it has implemented. Sales from the export terminal are expected imminently, re-establishing cash generation for Eland. Cash at YE16 was US$11.1m which has since reduced to US$5.9m, mainly reflecting initial operating expenses for the shipping alternative. While it is early days, Eland has demonstrated its ability to restart exports and production from OML 40 following the shut-down of the Forcados terminal a year ago. Production to date is averaging around 7kbd and we expect that to ramp up as Opuama operational performance improves. At US$55/bbl Brent, we estimate Eland is generating a net cash margin of around US$25/bbl. We reiterate our Buy recommendation and 95p per share Target Price.

Operating update and shareholder activism
15 Feb 17
December and January have seen the emergence of shareholder activism at Bowleven (BLVN), bringing its strategy and management into greater focus. Its largest shareholder (Crown Ocean Capital, COC) evolved from being a supportive shareholder to voting against a number of resolutions at the December AGM, to recently calling for the widespread removal of the board and a radically different company structure. Operationally, the company reports that a new development concept is under review by the stakeholders in Etinde, where production would be piped to existing gas processing facilities in Equatorial Guinea. Such a solution would (if approved) require significantly less capex and could be brought online relatively quickly vs other solutions (fertiliser, FLNG, gas to power). We leave our valuation largely unchanged, save for a revision to cash holding to reflect the recent operational update. Our new core NAV is 49p/share.
